    Chuck Roast, Round 2, Barbacoa

    World Series Taco Tuesday in the 505 - w/ Pron

    CINCHOUSE had a serious hankering for Mexican - shot me a text at work. Happy to oblige with a stop at the local Mexi-Mart, El Super. It's really tough to beat this Carne Asada Preparada with Chef Merito Marinade. Gotta go with freshly made corn tortillas, a little bacon fat, and a cast...

    Tacos al pastor

    I love Tacos al pastor but have never made them myself. They are a popular street food here in SoCal and Mexico. With the “I Love Big Butts” Throwdown going on I finally decided to try my hand at making some. Forgive me as this is a long one. I started out by thawing a Pork Butt I had in the...

    Wahoo Fish Tacos

    I saw this package of Wild Caught Ono filets for a good price at Costco and decided to put it in my cart. Ono is the Hawaiian name for what we call Wahoo in Mexican waters. Here’s a picture of one. It’s a delicious tasting white fleshed fish. I’ve never had the pleasure to catch one...

    Carne Asada Tacos are one of my favorite things to make and eat. I make them at least once a month and sometimes many more than that. Today I started by making a fresh batch of Pico de Gallo. Recipe is here:

    Carne Asada Tacos (I’ve lost count!)

    This is one of my favorite fast meals. I buy this seasoned skirt steak at Costco. Fire up the grill. Cut the skirt steak into more manageable pieces and cook them up until they just start to get some char on them. Bring them in and cut each piece across the grain into taco size pieces...

    Father’s Day Flap Meat Carne Asada

    Father’s day was a hot day out here in So (Lo) Cal. I wanted to cook something different but something both the wife and MIL would eat as well. Flap meat is a lesser known cut of beef although it’s fairly popular here in the So (Lo) Cal area. Many markets sell it thinly sliced plain or...

    Shrimp Tacos. (Pics) Not Que! C.I. this time

    Hello Brethren, The rain helped me decide to cook indoors tonight. If it had been snowing I would have grilled. I would much rather cook outdoors in the snow than rain. Anyway I digress. Here we go. Had just over a pound of raw peeled tail on shrimp that I wanted to do something with so I...

    Carne Asada Tacos

    I buy this pre-marinated skirt steak at Costco and usually have 2 or 3 in the freezer at any one time. It makes up some delicious taco fixings and can be done from start to finish in under 30 minutes. (I know this is so as I have timed myself. Assuming you’ve made up the Pico de Gallo in...

    Carne Asada Tacos in under 30 minutes

    My wife often complains that I take too long to cook the meals I make, sooo this “30 Minute & Under Meal” Throwdown was just what the wife ordered. I must say that when you’re on the clock you really have to think things out a whole lot more. I know that preparing the grill was not included in...

    So I’m on a taco roll this weekend. Today I marinated some Flank Steak for Carne Asada. All the ingredients are the same as in my Street taco post ( only doubled as this steak was over twice as big. Unfortunately it’s also twice as...

    This is a simple but delicious and quick dinner. I had picked up and froze this package of skirt steak from Costco. (Good stuff) I thawed it out and placed it on a blazing hot kamado. After approximately 10 minutes, flipping every 2 minutes, it was done. Take it in on my cutting board...

    Simple Tacos

    Simply delicious! I’ve been crazy busy at work and haven’t been able to cook (or even post) much and I finally got to have a break. I found some pre-marinated beef flap meat was on sale again, so I picked up 3 each 1 lb. packages. Yesterday I had already made up some Salsa Fresca. I was going...
